Text from Pages 1 - 72 of the 1939 volume:

I3 -A M, SCHOOLS ARE NOT MADE Schools are not made Of bricks alone, But of living things With flesh and bone. Beings who live Together as one, Working at lessons - Having fun. Schools are not made Of plaster and wood, But of helping friends Who've understood The pack of problems You've had to bear, And made your life . More free from care. Schools are not made Of steel and glass, But of memories From every class. A word in a hall, A basketball game, Streamers and music - Hearts aflame. Yes, schools are made 0f subtle stuff, Of ups and downs, Of smooth and rough And yet you'll say, In later strife: WThe happiest days In all my lifein ' P0 we Phyllis Rademacher Wallace Moore Robert Wagner Eloise Allen Editor-in-chief Business Manager Art Editor Feature Editor Jane Lobdell Silvio Fortino Paul Corgan Dorothy Bedford Feature Editor Sports Editor Sports Editor Girls' Sports Rayburn Wright Robert Young Silena Luchini Bette Redman Photographer Photographer Make-up editor Typist Alfred Almy Doratha DuBO1S Marjorie HQWQ11 Carl Wickmnn AsS't- A-T15 Ed- Miscellaneous Ed.

All of the photography in this 1959 edition of UPenther Telesn, with the exception of the senior pictures, was done by student photographers. Our two staff photographers are Rayburn Wright and Bob Young. They have been assisted- by Victor Abbott, S11 Fortino, and Preston Delevan. These students have been working for ,ggagg y about a year collecting candid shots and both teachers and stu- me dents are in good physical condi- tion as a result of dodging these demons of the candid camera. Rey and Bob have been in charge and have done 'fg- their own dark room work. auf f4lv QV., " ' ' Y gr X iw K SPRING AHRIVFS' aa., lj, , 4' Oo TIVITIES SIIJDE I DIJNCII Top Row: Charles Rodgers, Thomas Stein, Terry Lobdell, Bob Milham, Earl Wickman, Preston Nixon, Louis Thompson.

In 1928, Mr. Marshal Lane organized an agri- cultural club which, after receiving its charter on December 31, 1939, became the Alrna Chapter of the National Future Farmers of America. Any rural boy who wishes to specialize in agriculture and is enrolled in one of the agricultural classes is eli- gible to join. During the past year the club, under the able supervision of Mr. Lester Allen, has made two trips to Lansingg one during the Junior Farmer Jeek and the other during Farmer's week. Other activities include a trip to the Ionia Free Fair to judge livestock and grains, the annual corn show, which is sponsored in January and the Father and Son Bannuet in October.

This Alma organization is composed of boys sponsored by Mr. Ranch and is affiliated with the Y. M. C. A. They are a very active group. They aim to improve the ethical standards of the girls and boys in school, to strive for sportsmanship and cooperation. They have spon- sored movies and lectures carrying out this aim as well as sheer entertainment programs. The problem of school clioues, racial attitudes, and many others are discussed at their meetings. They left a scoreboard to the school during their first year as a club. Dr. Miller consulted with the boys on the problems of sex and Mr. Babcock discussed many of today's problems with the group. These have been the outstanding lectures this year. They have done numerous little things to improve out Alma High.

Under the leadership of Miss Barnes, the Alma High Girl Reserves were organized late last fall. This organization although yet in its infancy is being led to nbigger and bettern things by its capable president Jeanne Copenhafer. In years to come the Girl Reserves are expected to become a valuable addition to the High School life of many Alma girls.

During the past school year they have played for many extra curricular ac- tivities such as the Michigan Beet Growers Conven- tion, the dedication of the new Post Office, a pro- gram sponsoring the United States Marine Band, and the Armistice Day parade. In May, the band held its annual festival, later in the month it took active part in the Central Michigan Band Festival. The di- rector is Mr. R. A. Yoder, and the drum major, C. F. Vandemark.

The girls have tried to earn money to send delegates to the spring ,high school conference at Lansing. They have joined the Ameri- can Home Economics Association, and as a member have received many interesting helps. The club meets regularly once a month on Thurs- day evening, with an added record of at least one special evening meeting each month so far. Their main social project for the year was the sponsoring of an old time barn dance. The year closed with the annual picnic and election of officers.

For over a dezade the traditional Mardi Gras has been thrilling Alma High students with its French atmosphere and scenes suggestive of the gala occasion in New Orleans. This year the French class sponsored the festive affair on February 25. The King and Queen dominated the scene and chose the winners for the outstanding costumes of the evening. Helen Creeger, picturesouely attired in dress of days gone by took the prize for the prettiest. In the unique garb of a deep sea diver Morris Lockwood secured the prize for the most ori- ginal. The combined forces of Eugene Greenwood and Orville Lippert under the guise of Ferdinand the Bull took the laurels for the funniest attire. Jerry Corbett's syncopating music filled the air while the costumed couples danced.

On November 16, the curtain rose on an aspiring young group of actors and actresses. The occasion was the first showing of UChina Boyn, the annual Senior Play. The play was centered around Mark, the son of a missionary in China. He throws a wrench into the home life of the Parker family when he arrives une expectedly for an extended visit. Mark is a moral, upright boy who at onee wins the approval of the el- der members of the Parker family, but the younger set ban him as inhuman. Of course in the end, Mark, being the hero, makes friends with his cousins and their crowd. Director......Miss Barnes W 11, 11-L . ATHLETICS H f i1"u'L' " NX4 W n '15 ' . ' , . J , - ' 4 fi tix!! ' .

Alma High's football team looked to be the best in many years after playing Saginaw Arthur Hill. Losing in last seconds of play by a 15-7 score, the Panthers were in best of spirit and form. The team went on with high hopes and conquered Greenville 6 to O. The next week playing a night game with Mt. Pleasant gave Alma another win 7 to O. after some of the best goal line stands produced during the year by the Panthers. Fremont was their next victim, winning 26 to 7. Here however, their victories stopped and they lost their last three games to East Lansing, Big Rapids, and Midland. The first team consisted of Fortino, Efaw, endsg Fuller, Bronson, Bosch, Mills, tackles: Beard, Almy, Breidinger, Robinson, Doepker, guards, Stearns, Gay, Centers, Backs were McNeill, Corgan, Schneider, Moore Wiltshire, and Lobdell, ISASKEIIS ll If Standing: Paul Corgan, Jack Howe, Bob Young, George Young, Manley Hahn, Bud Stearns, Bob Phillips Donald Nelson, Ceylon Fulton, Jack Rademacher, Bud Wiltshire, Wallace Moore.

Only four matches have been lost and two championships have come into our school. The team of last year finished third in the state meet, only six strokes out of second place. Bob Phillips and Leon McNeill, number one and two men respectively, have played on a winning team during their golf career in high school.
